Holloween Wigs

Halloween is a festival of color and disguises. It is also the time where people of all ages from infants to grownups can have fun by doing extraordinary things. There are a wide range of wigs and costumes that can be worn to the parties. Other things that can be worn include make up, masks, and props. Halloween wigs are very popular both for ladies and girls and men and boys. No Halloween costume is complete without a good prop or hair wig. These can either make or break the look of a costume.

Long dark tresses wigs that hide the face, werewolf, scarecrow, evil butcher and other scary creatures are some of the creature-themed wigs that are available. These scare people off their skin but they are the essence of the Halloween party.

Through the time, the types of wigs have changed. There are traditional wigs and those that have been modernized to resemble some of the famous people.

Ordering a wig long before the event ensures that you get the best choice and also at a very reasonable price. Last minute rushes can cause one to get a wig that they did not intend to buy or even find them out of stock in most of the stores. Some people are very creative and can make these wigs at home. Those made from home give a unique own style and are not similar to any other. One can choose colors that are rare and this ensures originality and there is no possibility that there will be someone else wearing the same kind of wig.

Things to consider when making a wig include:
• Texture
• Material
• Color
• Size

Whether the wig is homemade or bought, there are some factors to consider. These are:
• Comfort – The wig worn should be comfortable to the head. It should fit well and should not be either too lose or too tight. When worn, it should be firm.
• Weight – The wig should be very light to an extent that the wearer should forget that he or she has it on.
• Safety – The wig should not contain any harmful substances or made of toxic materials that can harm the wearer.
• Pricing – The wig should not be too costly since it will only be worn for a day or two. There is no need of spending so much for something that will not be worn on any other day.
• Compatibility – The wig should be compatible with the chosen costume.

How to Heat Style Clip-In Hair Extensions

Heat style clip in hair extensions and achieve your desired hairstyle. There are two main types of clip-in hair extensions: synthetic and human hair extensions. Human hair extensions are typically the more expensive choice, as they are made of real human hair and look and feel more natural. Clip-in hair extensions offer a quick and easy way for women to achieve thick and voluminous hair. Simple to clip into your hair, you can even heat style clip-in hair extensions as you would with your natural hair by following a few important steps.

1. Brush or comb the hair extensions through to get rid of any knots and tangles.

2. Spray the extensions lightly with a thermal heat protectant spray. This helps create a barrier between the hair and any heat styling tools you use, to protect the hair and prevent damage.

3. Sit a piece of cardboard on a countertop, at the edge of a dresser or on the ledge of a staircase.

4. Place a door stopper on top of the cardboard, leaving about 1 inch of cardboard hanging over the side towards you.

5. Heat your hair straightener.

6. Straighten the hair extensions one weft at a time–wefts are the separate pieces of hair extensions–until they are all straightened. To straighten the hair, work in 1-inch sections, clipping a section to the piece of cardboard first so it stays firmly in place while you style the hair. Place the hair straightener at the top of a section and glide it down the hair to the ends.

7. Spray the hair extensions lightly with hairspray to set the style.

12. Heat your hot rollers.

13. Curl the hair extensions one weft at a time–wefts are the separate pieces of hair extensions–until they are all curled. To curl the hair, work in 1-inch sections, clipping a section to the piece of cardboard first so it stays firmly in place while you style the hair. Place the curling iron at the bottom of a section and turn the curling iron to wrap the hair around the barrel. Continue twisting until all the hair in this section is around the barrel and hold the curling iron in place for about 20 to 30 seconds, then gently release the hair.

14. Spray the hair extensions lightly with hairspray to set the style.

Tips & Warnings
For a sleek straight look, rub a small amount of hair serum between your palms and over the top of your hair to reduce frizz and smooth the hair.

You can use something in place of a door stopper as long as it has some weight to it, such as a bookend or a small lamp.

Hair extensions do not receive natural oils in the hair as your natural hair does. To help keep your extensions in the best condition and ensure the longest life—which is especially important if you use heat styling tools on them frequently–apply a deep conditioning hair treatment to the extensions at least once a month. Wash hair as normal, apply the hair treatment to the extensions and place them around the rim of the sink to soak for 10 minutes. Rinse the hair extensions out thoroughly and air-dry or style as desired.

You can also curl your hair with hot rollers. Heat your rollers and follow through with the same steps listed, substituting a hot roller for each curl you would make with a curling iron. Roll each section on a roller all the way up to the top of your head and secure with a clip. The main difference between using a curling iron and hot rollers is with a curling iron you only leave it in each section of hair for 20 to 30 seconds, whereas with hot rollers you leave them in until they cool, about 20 minutes for most hot rollers.

Ponytail extensions

In the past, a business hairstyle was a short hair, which was a sign of professionalism and gives a woman more mannish look. Nowadays, you can look beautiful, stylish and professional, without having a short haircut. Long gone are those days when ponytails were reserved for the gym, washing the car or for when you could not wash your hair.
The perfect decision for you is to style your hair into a ponytail and wrap part of your hair into the base of the hair in order to have more stylish look. However, it may be a problem for most of the women who do not have such a long hair, but there is no need for worries – there are different types of ponytail extensions hair, available on the market. Ponytail extensions are usually on the cheaper side compared other hair weaves and are easy to maintain. They are usually made from synthetic hair and hence the lower cost.

Blossom Synthetic Clip Ponytail

Before choosing a ponytail hair piece or extension, consider a few important factors. It’s essential to choose a color for your ponytail hair piece that closely resembles your natural shade of hair. Ask a sales consultant for advice if you’re uncertain. You should also choose a hair extension that is easy to maintain and clean. You can choose synthetic material or natural hair for your ponytail hair piece, each of which has its own advantages.
If you want to add volume to thin hair, choose a ponytail hair piece with highlights. Highlights in a lighter shade than your own natural color will add dimension to fine hair. You can choose one- or two-piece clip in extensions for your ponytail extension.Decide whether you’d prefer a straight hair style for your ponytail hair piece or an extension with curls or waves. If your hair is fine or lacks body, a curly style ponytail extension can add the volume you desire. If you have wavy hair that is unruly or naturally thick, choose a ponytail hair piece with a slight wave to complement your hair’s natural waviness.
Some ponytail hair extensions convert from straight to wavy. Convertible hair pieces typically are made with a built-in clip that can easily be adjusted to change the style of the wig. These types of hair pieces are generally medium length to long.

How to install Clips in hair extensions?

Clip on hair extensions are becoming increasingly popular with young ladies who do not want to wait to get their desired hairstyle. All you need to do is to install clip on hair extensions wherever you want to give extra body and lift to your hair. Use hair extensions made from virgin human hair to give your hair that near-natural look.
The popularity of clip on hair extensions lies in the fact that they are cheap and easy to install and even easier to remove. Unlike permanent hair extensions such as heat fusion extensions that have to be done in salons and cost a lot, clip on hair extensions are easy to install and you can do it at home.

You need three things to install clip on hair extensions: a small tooth comb, good quality hairspray, and of course, some clip on hair extensions.
1.Part the section of hair just like you do to create a high ponytail except that in this case, you leave a small section at the base.
2.Pile the section on the crown of your head and put a clip on it so that it does not get in the way.
3.Tease and backcomb hair roots with the small tooth comb and apply hairspray.
4.Open the clip on accessory and start by clipping the right clip on to the fuzzy roots of your natural hair, then move on to the left clip, and finally, the middle clip.
5.Undo the section of ponytail and create another high ponytail section. Leave another section of hair at the base, making sure that it is just an inch above the section you just worked on. This is to ensure that this layer of natural hair falls just over the clip on hair extension you just installed.
6.Repeat the steps for as many clip on extensions that you want to add, taking care that you leave the thin section of hair to cover the previous extensions.
7.When you have to work on the sides, take a small section of hair about three inches above the ear and clip on the extension.
8.Using hairspray makes the hair a bit firmer, which ensures that the clip on hair extensions do not detach easily

It is imperative that you do not brush your hair from the roots because this can potentially move the extensions hair. Also, make sure that you tease, backcomb and hairspray only that section of your hair where you wish to place the hair extensions.

How to Treat Bald Spots and Thinning Hair

We all wanna find a natural way for bald spots or thinning hair, not just buy the hair extensions for thin hair or a lace closures.   My mom and aunt all have the bald spots problem. But after about 1 month’s efforts, their hair did get stimulated to grow back! I’ll show you this easy and economical way now. All you need for this is fresh ginger root. I prefer the fresh root since it’s cheaper and easier to get.
The first thing you want to do is taking your cutting board and your peeler and a knife. Then peel off the first layer of ginger’s skin. Be careful with your knives and your peelers and you won’t cut yourself. Cut the big piece that been peeled and cut it into smaller sizes. So it’s easier to blend. This doesn’t have to be done perfectly. And if you have a super awesome blender then you probably don’t even need to cut it into little cubes.

So you’re just going to drop all of your pieces into your blender and you’re gonna add a tiny bit of water. Just as easy to blend. You can store any left over ginger puree/juice in the fridge. You can start with like two teaspoons of water first and you can add water as you go along. Just keeping blending until you see it blended nicely. It should have some juice and some pulp.
Transfer it over to a clean hair coloring bowl with a hair coloring brush. Don’t need to add anything else to it. Make sure there’re no tangles in your hair when you’re doing this because tangles are in good time ever. Now you can apply it to your hair with the brush. You can also get one with a peeled top part then take a pork and scrape the fresh of it so you can get some juice on the surface and take this piece to rub it all over the bald spot area.

Ginger is great because it has properties that protect and condition your hair, make it grow faster, reduce dandruff and prevent hair loss. you’ll feel warm and stimulating when put the ginger on your head. Don’t worry, that’s normal! Ginger is germicidal.Ginger is NOT going to magically cure baldness. But if you have some thin spots on your head and are combating hairless, have a hard time growing your hair, wanna make your hair grow faster and thicker, or traction alopecia where you tie your hair up too tight and u start to lose hair in that ponytail thats too tight, then the ginger will be great at stimulating hair growth. Ginger is very stimulating so do a test patch first to see if your skin is sensitive to it. If it is, I suggest mixing it with some jojoba oil, almond oil, olive oil, or coconut oil in equal parts, and then massaging it onto your scalp.

Would Short Hair Suit You?
Short hair is so popular this year that several short haircuts also appear in my list of the 20 Hottest Hairstyle Trends of the Year. But which of these popular cuts best suit your face shape and hair texture?
The great news is almost everyone can get away with a short hairstyle. Some styles work better with certain face shapes and hair textures. For example, your haircut should give you the illusion of having an oval face shape. So if you have a round face you’ll want to elongate it, and if you have a square face, you want to soften your jawline.

Hair Care: Cleaning and Conditioning Treatments,and Damaging Processes

Everybody wants beautiful, healthy hair and skin. For most people, grooming and maintenance of hair and skin is a daily process. The demand for products that improve the look and feel of these surfaces has created a huge industry. Beauty care technology has advanced the cleaning, protection, and restoration of desirable.

Hair properties by altering the hair surface. For many years, especially in the second half of the twentieth century, scientists have focused on the physical and chemical properties of hair to consistently develop products which alter the health, feel,shine, color, softness, and overall aesthetics of hair. Hair care products such as shampoos and conditioners aid the maintenance and grooming process. Shampoos clean the hair and skin oils, and conditioners repair hair damage and make the
hair easier to comb; prevent flyaway; and add feel, shine, and softness. Mechanical processes such as combing, cutting, and blowdrying serve to style the hair.

Chemical products and processes such as chemical dyes, colorants, bleaches, and permanent wave treatments enhance the appearance and hue of the hair. Of particular interest is how all these common hair care items deposit onto hair and change its properties, since these properties are closely tied to product performance. The fact that companies like Procter & Gamble, L’Oreal, and Unilever have hair care product sales consistently measured in billions of US dollars suggests that understanding the science behind human hair has more than just purely academic benefits, as well.

While products and processes such as combing, chemical dyeing, and permanent wave treatment are used to enhance appearance and style of the hair, they also contribute a large amount of chemical and mechanical damage to the fibers, which leads to the degradation of structure and mechanical properties.Asaresult,thefibers become weak and more susceptible to breakage after time, which is undesirable for healthy hair. Shampoos and conditioners which typically serve cleaning and repairing functions to the hair surface, respectively, have a distinct effect on mechanical properties as well.

The tribology of the hair also changes as a function of the various hair care products and processes. Figure 1.8 illustrates schematically various functions, along with the macro- and micro/nanoscale mechanisms behind these interactions that make surface roughness, friction, and adhesion very important to hair and skin.

Desired features and corresponding tribological attributes of conditioners are listed in Table 1.4 For a smooth, wet and dry feel, friction between hair and skin should be minimized in wet and dry envi-ronments, respectively. For a good feel with respect to bouncing and shaking of the hair during walking or running, friction between hair fibers and groups of hair fibers should be low. The friction one feels during combing is a result of interactions between hair and the comb material (generally a plastic), and this too needs to be low to easily maintain, sculpt, and comb the hair. To minimize entanglement, adhesive force (the force required to separate the hair fibers) needs to be low. In
other cases, a certain level of adhesion may be acceptable and is often a function of the hair style. For individuals seeking “hair alignment,” where hair fibers lay flat and parallel to each other, a small amount of adhesive force between fibers may be desired. For more complex and curly styles, even higher adhesion between fibers may be optimal.

6 Surefire Ways to Stop Thinning Hair

As many as two-thirds of women will experience hair thinning, according to a Harvard Medical School study. So, if you have fine hair already or notice your hair has been thinning as of late (it’s normal to lose roughly 100 hairs a day, but significantly more than that isn’t typical), it might be time to make some changes to your routine to prevent breakage and even worse, hair loss. To keep you ahead of the thinning-hair curve, Cosmopolitan.com talked to New York hairstylist Kevin Mancuso, creative director for Nexxus Salon Hair Care, about how to treat, prevent, and plump up skinny strands.

1.Loosen the tension. Constantly pulling on your hair and causing tension on your strands — by putting it into tight ponytails, excessively blow-drying it straight with a brush, or wearing extensions without giving you hair a break every few months — can permanently damage your hair follicles and actually cause hair loss or traction alopecia (as it’s medically termed). Mancuso advises his clients with thinning hair to choose looser styles rather than tight updos all the time and to opt for a brushless blow-dry (where you just use your fingers and the heat from the dryer) first before styling, both of which give hair a break from styling practices that can thin strands out even more.

2. Never skip conditioner. Not using conditioner is one of the biggest mistakes women with fine hair make. Because your hair is thin and often falls flat, you may instinctually avoid daily rinse-out conditioners and even any leave-in sprays or treatments too, thinking they’ll weigh down your hair. However, the opposite can be true, as long as you choose a lightweight formula. Here’s why: Over time, lack of hydration causes hair to become damaged and brittle, causing the actual diameter of each strand to become smaller. You do want to avoid ultra-softening conditioners formulated for extremely damaged hair which can be too heavy, and opt for those that are “as lightweight as possible,” Mancuso suggests. “Look for those that contain panthenol and glycerin that moisturize and support the thickening of your hair.” These ingredients keep fragile hair strong and responsive to styling. (Try Dove Oxygen Moisture Conditioner and Nexxus Hydra-Light Leave In Conditioning Foam.)

3.Chill on heat styling. The hair shaft of fine or thinning hair can break easily under high heat, so use your hot tools sparingly if you can. But, if your beauty routine requires a blow-dry, and a curling or flat iron, always use a protective spray on your hair first. Mancuso suggests gentle, lightweight mists for clients with thinning hair that have shielding ingredients such as dimethicone and glycerin to prevent future breakage and dehydration. (Try TRESemmé Thermal Creations Heat Tamer Spray.)

4. Eat a healthy and nutritious diet. What you eat — and how often — has a huge effect on the health of your hair. Your body needs constant fuel in the form of essential fatty acids, protein, B vitamins, and minerals such as zinc, iron and selenium to grow healthy hair. But don’t expect to start to load up on nutrients important for healthy hair and a week later see results. “It could take anywhere from several months or longer to notice the difference in your hair,” Stephanie Middleberg, a dietitian in NYC, says. “Hair is built from the inside out so a healthy body is important for healthy hair — but it will take time if you haven’t been getting enough of those nutrients for a while.”

5. Listen to your body. Sometimes, thinning hair is caused by medical factors, like thyroid problems, dramatic weight loss or gain, and anemia. Even heavy menstrual cycles can cause brittle, fragile hair from losing too much iron. “Any kind of hormonal balance dictates how your body is working in general,” Mancuso says. “As you get older, even in your 30s, your body is changing so you want to be in tune to what’s happening.” If something seems up with your system, always consult a doctor to get to the root of the problem.

6. Know your family history. Heredity also plays a role in hair loss. You could be prone to thinning hair just based on genetics alone. A good way to suss out whether or not you might see signs of thinning is by scoping out your family tree — from either the maternal or paternal side. If you see a pattern of hair loss or balding, see a trichologist (an expert who specializes in hair and scalp health) about what you can do to prevent the symptoms with supplements, diet changes, or laser therapy treatment that could help rev hair growth.
